On April 6, I took a spring hike in Kitimat River Provincial Park 

Kitimat River Park protects two parcels of small but highly productive old-growth Sitka spruce and red cedar forest on the natural floodplain and fluvial terraces of the Kitimat River. It also protects grizzly bear habitat and culturally modified trees

The hike was part of a new initiative to explore the natural beauty and ecosystem of the Kitimat Valley, organized the coalition called the Kitimat Watershed Working Group that includes the Kitimat Valley Naturalists.
